My New Income Source – Selling Tumbleweeds.


People think of EVERYTHING…these people sell the tumbleweeds you see by the side of the road while driving through the midwest. They are selling large ones for $25, medium ones for $20, and small ones for $15, plus shipping. Linda Katz, the owner of the business, says she’s making about 30 tumbleweed sales a week, which suggests revenues of about $40,000 a year. Holy sh%t…I think I need to find me some tumbleweeds around here…oh right, I live in California. I suppose I can try to sell some smog, anyone interested?

Hat Tip to Niche Geek for finding this! See, you can make a living doing almost anything…

    Heck, tumbleweeds are famous. They’ve been in just about every old western movie known to man. Who wouldn’t want the plant that played an extra in a John Wayne movie? =)

    It’s a cool idea. Hats off to the people that thought of it.

    The air is clean as can be here. 🙁 Do you sell carry smog in a 12 ounce size?

    I’ll trade you some…mosquitoes?

    And Ryan, you are right. I think I need to order some…
